Beatles, The - Chains Lyrics




Chains, my baby's got me locked up in chains
And they ain't the kind that you can see
Whoa, oh, these chains of love got a hold on me, yeah

Chains, well I can't break away from these chains
Can't run around, cos I'm not free
Whoa, oh, these chains of love won't let me be, yeah

I wanna tell you, pretty baby
I think you're fine
I'd like to love you
But, darling, I'm imprisoned by these...

Chains, my baby's got me locked up in chains
And they ain't the kind that you can see
Oh, oh, these chains of love got a hold on me

Please believe me when I tell you
Your lips are sweet
I'd like to kiss them
But I can't break away from all of these...

Chains, my baby's got me locked up in chains
And they ain't the kind that you can see
Whoa, oh, these chains of love got a hold on me, yeah

Chains, chains of love...

  17. Der Kommissar

    Written by Carole King. She also wrote dozens of other hits, some of which she recorded. My favorite is the Animals' "Don't Bring Me Down"

  18. Hew Grebe

    Great song, so early, too. Thanks.

  19. Andrew Harcourt

    Has anyone else noticed the echo on the left channel? I first noticed this when I originally bought the record in 1964. Also if you play the record, on the intro groove you can hear the faint start of the actual track. this is due to the vinyl still being hot from the cutting needle and they had to get 6 tracks each side so the grooves were very close together.
    Actually you can ask someone how many grooves are there on a 45, and how many on a 33 LP. The answer is two: one on each side.

  20. Madison Smarr

    I had one earbud in and heard whispers of voices. I then realised that I should be using 2 earbuds😂

  21. Goog Makes

    Very subtle

  25. Gabi Gabi

    It's crazy to think that The Beatles started with this then got to Norwegian Woods.

  26. Leo Weisberger

    Never forget...Carol King wrote this song.

  27. Gerald Orford

    I just keep thinking of these chains that got a hold on me.

  28. George harriqueen

    Please please me, Anna, if you are not locked in chains. I saw her standing there in misery with boys so I asked her "Do you want to know a secret?" She said "why yes of course." I replied "there's a place where I twist and shout. Ask me why." "Why." She asked."baby it's you" I stammered and I ran out of the building but I turned shouted "P.S I love you so love me do."

  29. coldwarcommie 69

    @Jimmy McPeters yes, Carole King and Gerry Goffin

    Jimmy McPeters

    @José Candal yup. Her husband. He actually wrote the words. He also wrote words to Natural Woman which is amazing.

    José Candal

    @Jimmy McPeters sure! they were a prolific and talented husband and wife songwriting team throughout the 1960s, writing many hits and songs that have since become pop standards.

  37. John Allen

    It was that harmony that sucked me in when they first came out. Just four talented guys that could harmonize together on great songs. What a band.

  39. Channeling John Bonham

    At 1:28 you'll here what sounds like John or George growl or make some sort of noise like an arggghh, maybe a bad note or someone wasn't happy.

    natalee Something

    Channeling John Bonham or they were being weird 😂

  40. La Guarida Del Espartano

    En lo personal es una de mis canciones favoritas :)

  41. Nancy Miller

    I had a four-album set of Beatles' music with the Greek letters Alpha and Omega. Anyone have this set?

  42. JazzFan74

    Some weird distortion on this from 1:02 to 1:10 that is not on the mono version.

  43. James Wallace

    Amazing reverb on the other channel from the one George is singing on.

  44. Blondie

    Woo-hoo!!👍😆

  45. SuperMarioStar10

    The Beatles do every song better

  46. giovanna

    ah mano eu amo tanto essa música, jesus cristo. george cantando é simplesmente tudo pra mim

  47. dave loves bonanza

    Alondra & David !

    17 sailors yeeah in some songs they do right?

  48. Arty Anthony

  51. Mauro Gajardo

    Carole King!!

  52. Firebrand55

  53. Luigi.

    Shenanigan Planet

    Sounds like george laughing

  54. Sara S

    i <3 george

  55. Alejandro Gutierrez Gandara

    This song is way better than todays music, todays music is garbage
    Beatles forever!

    Alisa Oletič

    I totally agree! Please god give us back John and George and we give you Justin and Ariana!

    John Salvage

    @Alisa Oletič No. I'd lock them up, and release the Beatles all over again.

    joe smith_axe

    @Alisa Oletič lmao I use to have that profile picture

  56. Alex the Railfanning Redneck™

    *Insert BDSM joke here*

  57. John History videos

    Did Carole King and Gerry Goffin really write this? The Cookies first sang this.

    resireg

    It is funny, because Carole King sings such different kind of music

    funkster007

    Carole had a knack for writing pop songs at an early age. Actually one of the best in the business. But yeah, as a kid I just remember her from her Tapestry album and thought she was more a 70's star.

  58. Lucas Gill

    Ive been going through a rough patch in my life for the past 9 months and music is the one thing that makes me feel like its all going to be ok.

    D3ATHGD

    Lucas Gill hope you start feeling better. Beatles music is just on a different level of music

  59. John History videos

    When George sings, you need to stop what your doing.

    Slambo TV

    Bhuyatax Lima yeah

    RODOLFO TRUJILLO MARTINEZ

    I agree

  60. Dr. killpatient

    Excellent cover of the (cookies ???) Classic I remember it from the old Beatles cartoon-series that used to come on Saturday mornings back in the 60's.

  61. Marlilyn Ortiz

    Love to hear George

  62. Larry Reid

    If you like this remastered version, you would have LOVED the original on vinyl. Not sure who thought these masterpieces needed anything and, yes, I know George Martin was the engineer on this. He apparently lost much of his hearing.

  63. John Grij

    George Harrison: Vocals, Lead Guitar.
    John Lennon: Backing Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Harmonica.
    Paul McCartney: Backing Vocals, Bass.
    Ringo Starr: Drums.

    Kostas Bozas

    Poor Ringo no vacals for him

    Hew Grebe

    Such a great description of this good song. Thanks. 🙂

    Sci Brew

    Pete best: drum

    Osvaldo Menezes

    George number one

    Kent Crawford

    @Kostas Bozas lol

  64. Almog Chaim

    the drums right before the chorus starts GO SO HARD

  65. Daniel Olivares

    Deliciosa

  66. Tommy Vercetti

    La mejor canción para levantarse por la mañana :)

    kaniorion

    😀😀😀

  67. DJdennisgamer

    I love this song and we all miss George

  68. Jamming Garageband

    Love this song and a fantastic voice George has. You can hear his distinctive guitar style. The best and most talented musician in the Beatles.

    Elaine Reise

    Andy Konrad I agree haha

    Dyslexic Batnam

    Paul was definitely the most talented musician in the group

    Margaret

    @Dyslexic Batnam John was just as good and he was a superior songwriter.

    Dyslexic Batnam

    @Margaret I'm not talking about songwriting I'm talking about instrument playing. Paul could play like 40 instruments and was just overall better than John.

    Darien E

    @Margaret Paul was a better musician, and song writer. Bob Dylan, regarded as the greatest songwriter of all time, said paul was better than john and himself.

  69. Miguel Osvaldo Flores Dominguez

    This is a good song, but is the worst song of this album.

  70. Miriam Lopez Navarro

  71. Imelda Ennis

    We all have them... Passed and present...Life...George and John 🎤🎸🎶❤️💙💙

  72. peter papadimitriou

    This album is alot better than the older one with the same cover but with them older and have longer hair, I'm not from that generation but the one after lol I was born in '72 after they broke up

    Giovanni Loddo

    That's the red / blue album. It was a compilation, not a studio album, released by their manager Allen Klein at the time

  73. Alex Soria

    The Beatles had so many phases can’t believe these are the same people who made the white album

    Alexander Stewart

    U, Me, and Katie B
    Paul never really addressed the question if he is not really Paul. Now if I put myself in Paul shoes I can see how I wouldn’t want to address something so stupid. But this is what actually happened Paul was in an accident he didn’t get hurt he did go to the hospital. There were rumors going around that Paul had died. And then he was replaced. This is right around the time where John Lennon made that famous and remark that the Beatles are bigger than Jesus Christ. Which I regard as one of the most famous statements by a rock group ever. At that time people start a burning Beatles albums beetle sales were dropping. They put clues about that into their songs and on their album covers and then when someone finally figured it out what these things were the conspiracy ran wild. People we’re playing their records backwards wearing them out having to buy multiple records. Which in turn skyrocketed the beetle sales. It was actually quite genius I’ve said it before the Beatles are the greatest marketing band ever. No one marketed their albums themselves their music greater than the Beatles did I give them a ton of credit. Yes I agree their first couple of songs were geared toward the teenyboppers. You got to start off somewhere. Their songs and their album started to change around 6768 when Paul McCartney did not want to tour anymore. No I do not think that Paul McCartney is dead and this one here is a fake Paul McCartney. I love to cause trouble stir the pot get people thinking a little bit and start debating. And I do not like the majority of the Beatles music. I personally do not think they are very good when it comes to songs and music, but that is my personal taste I love classical music as well can’t get enough of it it’s just amazing that they can get so much emotion out of the instruments all into sink all playing together in time and instep it’s mine boggling.

    Darien E

    @Alexander Stewart Ya know man, I just assumed you were an idiot from your terrible and mindless critique of the beatle's music, but when you said that paul died you proved it. Take you idiot conspiracy theories elsewhere you gullible fool.

    the diamond kid

    @Alexander Stewart ugh.

    Der Kommissar

    @Alexander Stewart The Beatles appealed to many people, not just teenage girls. Maybe if you were around back then , you would have noticed. Also , Hendrix covered Cream and Dylan, he liked to play songs that he liked, maybe you are reading too much into his covers.

    Alexander Stewart

    Der Kommissar I agree.. it’s pop music.. that’s more appealing then hard rock.. if one listens to the music from 62-66.. it’s clear that the Beatles are by far the better group... their different.. more up best..! There personable.. funny.. and they took over that time period.. they perfected there craft in Germany.. And when Brian found them.. he knew what he found and marketed them as polished lads.
    With that said.. I’m not a fan of their music at all..! But.. I recognize their greatness from a historical standpoint.
    As soon as Hendrix came on the scene. The musician landscape was changed forever. Then zeppelin.. and that was it. The Beatles albums continued to sell.. which goes to their greatness.

  74. Cat Man

    Chains!

  75. Shade

    Takes 2, 3, & 4 gotta be released on an Anthology 1 remake

  76. Regno Unito

    Whenever I hear the voices of John and George, I feel so sad.

    Don’t call me mom

    Vereinigtes Königreich I was thinking. That doesn’t sound like John. I thought I went mad there

    Amanda Schaefer

    Royaume Uni same here. 😞 They left us too soon. 😢

    Kathryn Wilson

    Try not to be sad ...think about how wonderfully lucky we are to have had them for the short time that we did. Should have been for longer ...but at least we HAD them

    Karen Clark

    To hear their voices still is comforting, they still live in their music, lovely

  77. Cata Trøncøsø

  80. Tungsten Kid

    I don't like this modern tinny "remastered" stuff, I was a teen in the 1960's when we had the real deal..:)

    Mickeyislowd

    Ya'll mean 'Reel' deal..?

    lazrpo

    Tinny? These are a massive improvement in bass clarity compared to the 80s transfers.

    Tungsten Kid

    It's sacrilege to mess around with the originals, a bit like somebody deciding to "remaster" Da Vinci's Mona Lisa by adding touches of new colour...:)

    JRock Ofages

    they have compressed the life out of MAGIC

    cathy crompton

    Tungsten Kid Me too I was born in 1951 so I was in 7th grade. What a decade to grow up in.

  81. Sam Universe

    Can't run around 'cause I'm not free.
    Whoa, these chains of love won't let me be. Yeah!
    Now believe me when I tell you I think you're fine.
    I'd like to hold you, but, darling, I'm imprisoned by these
    Chains, my baby's got me locked up in chains,
    And they ain't the kind that you can see.
    Whoa, it's chains of love got a hold on me, Yeah!
    I wanna tell you pretty baby, your lips look sweet.
    I'd like to kiss them, But I can't break away from all these

  89. Brad Dixon

    An easy and very sing-able Beatles song.

    347walnut

    Brad Dixon It was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, first made popular by The Cookies.

    Raymond Cruz

    @347walnut - It was written by Gerry Goffin alone with Carole King's name added.
